"A Treatise of Fishing with an Angle"


Published June 2, 2006


Published in 1496 as part of the Book of St. Albans, and written by an English prioress, this little treatise explains how to make a telescoping fishing rod, fishing line, and hooks. It also explains how to fish, when, and where.

However, for the non-angler, the real pleasure of this treatise is its pleasant tone and small nuggets of wisdom.

Subject: Fishing with an Angle
If you like classic lit, and you love fishing, than this book is for you. The first section is all about how they used to make the rod and what they used for line and hooks. Very interesting! The advice in the second section still holds up for today's fisherman. The reader stumbles over the language every now and then but it dosn't really detract from the joy of the book.
